I Always Wanted To conquer the world.
It Only Took Starting My Own Business to make it happen.
Top off your champagne glass, sit your booty down and settle in for this ride.
When I was a little girl, I used to close my eyes and picture my future, and I only ever saw one thing on the horizon:
The FREEDOM to do things my way.
The FREEDOM to say no to a white picket fence, 2.5 kids, and an SUV to shuttle everyone back and forth to school and soccer practice.
And definitely the FREEDOM to opt out of a 9-5 job, where I’d be killing time as I counted down to retirement, spending every waking hour on Pinterest looking at travel porn instead of actually seeing the world like my soul desperately craved.
Truthfully? I had no idea how I’d make it all happen.
I just knew that there was no other option for me.
Before I became the CEO with the international business and the 12-person team, I was a 20-something college chick on an exploratory mission.
It took me through the winding streets of Morocco as I studied Arabic and film during the day and mint tea and the bazaars at night. For the first time in my life,
I felt completely free.
But what happens when you allow yourself to do things differently for the first time ever? Your old patterns, beliefs and fears come swooshing in like an army of fun-killing dream squashers.
They bopped me on the nose and sent me spiraling....all the way to an ashram for Yoga Teacher Training.
change the world
I knew if I was going to change the world, I needed to first start with myself.
That’s how I found myself in the Bahamas for six months, sleeping in a tent, wearing nothing but yellow T-shirts and talking to people named after Hindu gods. It was Heaven on Earth for a girl who’d never quite fit in.
That’s when it happened: I. Went. Viral.
You should know that was never my intention, just a byproduct of standing up for what you believe in and doing the things you’re meant to be doing.
One of the organizations at my university had a history of racism that prevented students of color from getting involved on campus.
So I made a video exposing the whole thing, and it went viral within 24 hours of being posted.
I was interviewed by Cosmopolitan and the Independent, and took meetings with the University President and Dean of Students.
It was my first experiment using social media to create a movement, and it became the catalyst for my online business.
I decided to go even bigger, booking a one-way ticket to Bali with $800 in my pocket and faith that I had what it took to hack this whole entrepreneurship thing.
When I landed on the island, I picked up whatever work people would pay me for, booking a gig as a freelance social media writer and making $12 an hour to try to recreate the magic I’d made in college.
By the end of the month, I’d made $5,000...the wrong way. I was hustling way too hard, taking on too many clients, and losing sleep over projects that didn’t make me feel fulfilled.
I had a choice in front of me: keep doing what I was doing and create a life that was “good enough” or take the next step towards what I really wanted.
More money. More adventure. More impact.
If I was going to walk my talk, I knew I needed to get help from a coach who would take me further than I could ever go on my own. I faced my fears head on and took a leap of faith as I laid $3,600 I barely had on the line to hire my mentor, shaking in my boots the whole time.
Hellooooooo, turning point!
Immediately after hiring my coach, I had my first $10k month. I doubled it two months later. Soon, I was bringing in $50,000 a month and getting featured in places like Forbes and Business Insider.
I launched Build A Better Business to the tune of hundreds of new students who couldn’t wait to get a piece of this fiery hot momentum for themselves. Then lightning struck twice with The Bali Mastermind, which we dropped overnight like a freaking Beyonce album...and snagged 300 applications for 30 available spots.
From there, Sabrina Philipp International kept on growing, as we’ve released program after program and scaled this business far past the million dollar mark.
I’ve transitioned out of being just another coach on the internet to fully claiming my spot as the self-made CEO of a 7-figure business with a thriving team and a baller bottom line — not to mention all the hotel points I’ve racked up around the globe 😉
While Bali is where my heart (and my stuff) is, I’ve made the entire world my home as I travel from Hong Kong to Australia, from London to New York with my partner in crime and love and business, Paul.
I’ve finally hit the level of freedom that little girl had always desired, and I’m in it for the long haul, baby.
Through our active + magical community The Intentional Entrepreneur, our next-level business-building programs and our coaching, Sabrina Philipp International has helped countless entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs design their own intentional, manageable and profitable businesses that allow them to experience the freedom they’ve been so deeply craving.
Even better than my success? The success of my clients. They’ve been picked up in Forbes, Inc., The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Glamour, Cosmo and Bustle. They’ve quit their day jobs to start businesses that earn hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in cash money. They’ve retired their husbands, built tribes of 20,000, traveled the world, and embodied the vision they’d always had in mind for themselves.
